Health & Safety Department

Mission statement

The mission statement for the Health and Safety Department.

The Health and Safety Department provides appropriate and effective support to facilitate the University's attainment of its core objectives in teaching and research, whilst preserving the highest quality of health and safety practice across the University's wide spectrum of activities, so meeting all its legal and moral obligations in this regard.

The Health and Safety Departments' fundamental mission is therefore to assist and advise the University Court, and all members of the University community, in ensuring, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare whilst at work of all employees and students, and the safety of authorised visitors and members of the public entering the precincts of the University.
